The partners involved - Solvis GmbH & Co. KG, SorTech AG, the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg – are presently looking for participants for the solar cooling test.
In the cooperative project 10 solar cooling systems with a power range of 5-30 kW are to be installed and equipped with measuring instruments.
Compared to conventional cooling techniques, electricity savings of up to 80% can be realised with solar-driven adsorption chillers. In addition, no environmentally harmful substances are used for the cold production – rather, just pure water is used as refrigerant.
The components used are high-quality products from the company Solvis GmbH & Co. KG for the solar and system technology and from the company SorTech AG for the thermally-driven chiller unit. Private households and companies, who are interested in participating in this practice test, can apply by contacting Solvis or SorTech.
“The customer receives a complete system solution, fitted to his individual needs and serviced through to the end of the project in December 2012,” says Ralf Kynast from Solvis.
